“I am an older parent and a veteran elementary teacher. I thought I knew how to parent well…I don’t. Dalton’s parenting classes are helping me break old habits so that I can stop undermining my son by micromanaging him, and instead, raise a compassionate, responsible and independent man who will help shape a better society.”     

– Marjorie Lamarre, John Muir Elementary Teacher & Parent
